Founded in 1994 by Iliana Armién and Andreas Eke, Futuro Forestal S.A. is considered the tropical forestry industry’s first ‘impact’ investment manager, benefitting from 18 years of experience in the field.

For years the company has sought to develop sustainable alternatives to traditional monoculture timber investments in the tropics. To date the company has planted over 8,000 hectares of tropical hardwoods: exotic teak and native species.

Since its inception in 1994, Futuro Forestal has worked on its innovative model for sustainable reforestation using both native species and teak in the tropics. We were the first to commercially plant precious native hardwoods and the first company in Panama to receive FSC certification.

Over a period of time we have evolved from a family business with three employees to a timberland management company with up to 2500 employees. The company began with retail investments, serving small-scale investors, more recently institutional clients and now serves the growing impact investment community.
We have received numerous recognitions for our sustainability efforts.

Fundada en 1994 por Iliana Armién y Andreas Eke, Futuro Forestal SA es considerada el primer reforestador de "impacto" en la industria forestal tropical, beneficiándose de 18 años de experiencia en el campo.

Durante estos años, la compañía ha tratado de desarrollar alternativas sostenibles a las inversiones tradicionales de monocultivos de madera. Hasta la fecha, la empresa ha plantado más de 8.000 hectáreas de maderas duras tropicales: tanto teca como especies nativas.

Desde su creación, Futuro Forestal ha trabajado en mejorar su modelo innovador para la repoblación forestal, usando métodos sostenibles, especializándose en especies nativas. Fuimos los primeros en plantar comercialmente valiosas maderas nativas y la primera compañía en Panamá en recibir certificación FSC.

Durante un período de tiempo hemos pasado de ser una empresa familiar con tres empleados a una empresa de gestión de bosques maderables de hasta 2500 empleados. La compañía comenzó con una inversión menor, sirviendo a los pequeños inversores, más recientemente, clientes institucionales y ahora sirve a la creciente comunidad de "inversiones de impacto".

Hemos recibido numerosos reconocimientos por nuestros esfuerzos de sostenibilidad.
